- Add Creativity to the Branding – An attractive design will stand out on the shelf and is the first decision factor for any customer. Adding tailored information about the ingredients and processes used to create the beer are helpful as well.
- Clearly Define the Beer – Every craft brew label should have information regarding the style (lager or ale) and/or the type of beer (Stout, Amber, etc.). Creating a catchy name is definitely good idea for marketing and recognition.
- Ensure All Product Labels Are Cohesive –This means each offered item has its own unique label with common brewery elements. A good choice is to use similar colors, images, and fonts to make the brand easy to identify.
- Get Professional Design Help – Consider getting assistance from a professional company who understands the packaging and labeling aspects of the beer industry.
